Sue and Lee, Wedding Couple
Just a little note to let you know how very much we appreciated all you did to help make Rachel and David’s wedding ceremony run so smoothly – especially so ably overcoming the difficulty with the organ! There have been many favourable comments on the music you composed for Rachel’s entrance.
Pam, Mother of the Bride
Andrew is very engaging and full of energy. All the residents benefitted from the session - some not able to communicate but responded. Very Uplifting! Welcome back anytime.

This little note comes with my sincere thanks to you for your playing of the organ at the Service of Thanksgiving for John’s life. . . . we always enjoyed your music at Allhallowgate and I was so pleased when you felt able to play on that special day.
we all thoroughly enjoyed your organ recital here at Sewerby. Everyone has commented on it and how lovely it was to hear the organ played so beautifully – or indeed as it should be played! The programme was so varied and well put together. The whole evening was such a joy.
